The Bentonville, Arkansas-based corporation said the funds will support ongoing relief effort, including nonprofit grants supporting the America Red Cross and Salvation Army for shelter and feeding efforts, as well as in-kind product donations to support first responders.
“We are saddened by the devastation caused by the wildfires and the impact to our associates and the communities we serve,” said Julie Gehrki, vice president of programs for Walmart Friday.
“This has been an unprecedented year for disasters around the United States, and we remain committed to support relief efforts to help them through this difficult time.”
Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have donated more than $35 million this year to disaster relief efforts, officials said.
